My parents brought this home from Toronto. From notes.

A - Poured cloudy golden or dark orange. Good soapy two finger white head on top with strong carbonation. Decent lace rings and a half finger of retention.

S - Zest, light fruits, light citrus, peach, grass.

T - Same as the aroma. Light/zesty fruits. Passionfruity, citrus peel, extremely hop forward.

M - Strong carbonation, medium body, mild bitterness.

O/D - Nice and light with lot's of hop character. Very similar to a few Australian beers. Nice session ale by North American standards.

3.8/5  rDev -0.5%

Poured on-tap and served in a tumbler pint, the beer is a hazy, orange-gold coloring with a filmy, clingy, white surface coating of head. Nose of citrus hops, grapefruit and tangerine forward, with a biscuit backbone. Flavors of pepper, cannibus, and oregano spices in the forward hops profile, with a tangerine and grapefruit backbone. Very light and crisp in mouth. Bitter and sweet aftertaste, with a slightly filmy, dry finish. Very easy to drink.

Bottle from brewery. Enjoyable bitter ale, more so than being a classical APA. Light citrus. Floral hops. Moderate foam head on light orange body. Soft mouthfeel. Very drinkable and refreshing. I see this being available in cans, replacing much big lot beer.

hazy orange colour, 1.5 fingers of dense and rocky white head, lots of lace. Smell is packed with citrus fruit, orange, grapefruit and mango, a bit of malt in the mix as well but a big hop presence is dominant. Dry and bitter up front, lots of juicy citrus, orange flavours lead to a bready malt sweetness, more drying hop in the finish. Light carbonation, medium bodied. Solid pale ale here, low abv with a ton of flavour, not unlike the Common but much drier.

Fresh bottle from the brewery but no freshness info was apparent. Poured in to tulip glass.

A - Hazy medium orange with a half finger of cream coloured head.

S - Massive fresh hop aroma with grapefruit, tangerine and some pine notes. Lighter peach aroma is present as well as a slight caramel malt sweetness.

T - Moderate bitterness up front with grapefruit, tangerine and pine flavours. A slight caramel malt backbone provides some balance. The palate falls short of the wonderful aroma, but this is still tasty, especially given the ABV.

M - Light to moderate carbonation with some hop oils present. Moderate carbonation.

Bottle from the brewery, 500ml into a tulip.

Hazy orange, with a dense white cap. Great retention and lacing. Nose of citrus, mostly oranges, light malt notes and some sweetness. A good bit of pine as well. Taste is generally citrusy and bready, some toasty malt and bread crust on the back end. More orange and a touch of orange pekoe. Medium feel, medium carbonation. Tasty, and while not a session beer, I could consume this in comparable quantities.

No date on the bottle, but it can't be more than a week old.

Beer is cloudy orange. A very small white head dissipates quickly. No lace.

Smell is nice; hop focused with lots of tropical and citrus fruit. Some grapefruit, pineapple. A bit of a herbal scent and slight bready malt.

Taste is fairly bitter (surprisingly so). Hop focused again, but not as full as the nose. Pineapple, grass, a bit of pine. Some bready malt. Lingering bitter aftertaste.

Light bodied, moderate carbonation. Refreshing. A bit thin, but certainly a good feel for a beer designed for sessioning.

Overall, fairly flavourful for a low abv beer, but my first impression is that I would take the Common Pale Ale over this.
